Dude interviews his younger self

Der Gentleman mit dem wunderbaren Namen Stoney Emshwiller nahm im Alter von 18 Jahren eine Reihe von Interviewfragen auf Video auf und beantwortete sie nun, als 56jähriger Altsack: „An 18-year-old and his actual 56-year-old self have a chat.“ Stoney – Der Name! – hat das Projekt bereits erfolgreich auf Rockethub crowdfinanziert und ich habe Herrn Emshwillers – Der Name! – YT-Channel abonniert, wenn er das Teil online stellt, mach’ ich ein Update. (via Boing Boing)

A recent health scare (happily a false alarm) made me realize I ain't gonna live forever, and that it's time to finish this project. So I’m finally going to (gulp) face my younger self and record the other half of the conversation. Then I’ll edit all the footage together. The final illusion should be a humorous, touching, sometimes combative, always revealing, totally impossible conversation between a bright-eyed teen and his own middle-aged self. It could get messy….

WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO FACE THE PAST? It's about the expectations we put on ourselves. The difference between potential, ambition, and reality. What is success? What is failure? Who decides how to judge a life? The past is still in us, wanting answers. Maybe it's time to stop running and have a talk.
And, while where chatting, what’s the deal with that beard, dude?
